C.R. England Inc. announced that it will adopt ATDynamics' semi-trailer rear-drag aerodynamics technology. The adoption of TrailerTail technology at C.R. England has the potential to reduce the company's diesel consumption by more than two million gallons annually, the equivalent of offsetting the carbon emissions of over 7,000 passenger vehicles.
After joint fuel-economy testing, C.R. England will begin deployment of ATDynamics' fuel-saving TrailerTail technology this November.
TrailerTails are mounted to a semi-trailer's rear doors and reduce aerodynamic drag at the flat rear surface of the trailer. Their patented origami design allows the devices to completely collapse out of the way when the trailer doors are opened to allow the loading and unloading of cargo.
